Summer Sun Safety Tips for Seniors


With summer in full swing, many seniors are looking forward to going outside to enjoy the warm weather and have fun with friends and family members. However, there are still a few things seniors need to be aware of before they can continue venturing outdoors.

Since August is Summer Sun Safety Month, we at Helping Hands Hale — a professional Home Care Service Provider in Hawaii — want to give our clients this list of summer sun safety tips for seniors.

  • Staying Hydrated
    Water is essential to a healthy lifestyle. But during warmer seasons, it can be easy for older adults to get dehydrated, especially if they like to spend a lot of time outdoors. Making sure you or your loved one always has a bottle of drinking water in hand can help prevent dehydration from happening.
  • Protecting the Eyes
    Seniors can have more sensitive eyes, especially those with eye or vision issues. Protecting your peepers can be as easy as wearing sunglasses when outside or wearing a visor or a brimmed hat to shield your eyes from damaging UV rays.
  • Monitoring for Skin Changes
    Most people don’t pay attention to skin changes, especially older adults. However, it’s an important part of skin protection. A professional Healthcare Service Provider in Hawaii can help your loved ones monitor skin changes and report back to their physicians to get a proper diagnosis and/or advice.

The state of Hawaii has determined that most caregivers are considered employees and in order to LEGALLY hire and pay your OWN caregiver, you must have a company established with State and Federal tax ID numbers. In addition to their hourly pay you must also pay for Workers Compensation Insurance, Temporary Disability Insurance, General Liability Insurance, and if the caregiver works more than 20 hours per week you must also provide medical insurance for each caregiver. Therefore; choosing an established agency such as Helping Hands Hale is an affordable and easy solution that will save you time, money, and relief from being in violation of State and Federal Labor Laws.
